"MY GROWN-UP & ME"
FARM & FOREST SATURDAYS
****PROGRAM PAUSED UNTIL****
We are so excited for you and your littles to join us in the Gardens and the Forest for our weekly Farm & Forest School Saturdays session! This is the perfect way to discover the fun that we have at Rewilding Education and to spend some beautiful time together connecting and playing in nature.
Saturdays 10:00AM - 12:00PM
(Programs will begin again in April/May 2023 weather depending)
Cost: Pay what you can ($10 Donations are welcome to make this program accessible to all)
10:00 - 10:20: Arrival time, Playground Play
10:20 - 10:40: Good Morning Circle Time; Short themed activity/story
10:40 - 11:00: Tour of the Gardens/ Picking weeds to feed the chickens & feeding the chickens (A favourite activity!)
11:00 - 11:15: Snack & Story time in the forest on our story log
11:15- 11:25: Forest Walk if you wish
11:25 - 12:00: Mud Kitchen/ Forest Play/ Craft Activity/ Free time to go back to your favourite part (Forest, Playground, Chickens etc)
Our time together will be fluid and we'll follow the children's lead in whatever is inspiring their play. If you want to stay longer with the chickens, go for it! Enjoy your time together. This time is for you and your little wildling. Please do not enter the barn- it is a working farm and the barn has tools in it. Please respect the gardens and watch yours and your littles steps. Even an area that doesn't "look" like anything is growing could be hiding something yummy and we don't want to squish it with our feet!
We have porta-potties on site for washrooms, unfortunately we do not have an indoor space for diapering (yet). Please plan accordingly.
Where & When:
8463 5th Line, Angus, ON. Located on the land of the beautiful Moondance Organic Gardens. We will meet at 10AM near the playground. You can park in the front parking lot on the right immediately after you turn into Moondance. Look for me (Becky) with my brown floppy hat!
How to Dress your Little for Farm & Forest School:
Warm Pants & Socks
Rain Boots / Shoes that can get dirty
Top: Lots of Layers! T- shirt, light sweater, rain coat
Dress for the weather! We will play and explore RAIN OR SHINE! We will need to cancel our activities during a thunderstorm.
What to bring:
Small bag (backpack is best) with water bottles, bug spray, sunscreen, a small snack, a face cloth for washing mucky hands, and... your sense of adventure! Your littles will get the most out of our time together if grown-ups are ACTIVELY participating in all the activities!
